In our home we value creativity, honesty, curiosity & play, and think it's ok to fall down from time to time.
Hi! We're Aeriel and Dave—a joyful, loving, creative couple dividing our time between Brooklyn and the south shores of Long Island. David is a graphic designer. Aeriel oversees video and photography for magazines and advertising. Needless to say, we love the arts!
When we're not biking around Brooklyn visiting museums (and hunting down the absolute best donut in the city) we can usually be found at the beach swimming or surfing or fishing.
We have a close, loving relationship, with twelve years under our belts. We’ve built a life together as collaborators, cheerleaders, advisors on problems big and small, playmates and of course, deeply committed partners. Each of us brings sense of adventure, curiosity and wonder about the world around us to the relationship—things we hope to instill in a child. We hope that in our home your child will learn to value creativity, honesty, curiosity and play, and to understand that it’s ok to fall down from time to time. We want to provide a loving, supportive, encouraging home where your child can flourish.
We feel so blessed to have so much joy and love in our lives. We can’t wait to harness all the love around us and guide a child to achieve their hopes and dreams. We know that life isn’t always easy and the road isn’t always smooth, but being surrounded by people who love you unconditionally, support you and can hold your hand through the rough patches makes those bumpy times just a little better.
What kind of parents will we be? Hands on, first of all. We're always the first two people on the ground playing and reading with our nieces and nephews. We love experiencing life with them. We'll also make sure to guide and teach your child, with an emphasis on not just a great education, but the education that suits them! We love how experiences can be some of the best teachers. And of course, we'll be loving, stable guides in life, giving your child the tools they will need to flourish in their future!
We are deeply grateful that you're taking to time to read this and get to know us a little. We're also are looking forward to getting to know you. It takes courage to make even first steps towards an adoption plan for your child. We hope to have the opportunity to honor that courage through our parenting, and through an open adoption. After all, you will always be your child's first family. Our biggest aim is to lift you up and support you through this process.
